The wonderful cars of Cuba

So the isolation of Cuba is set to end. President Obama says so, so it must be true. Pretty soon now, Cuba will be selling all their ‘50s era American cars to eager purchasers. They will get a high price for sure, these cars are much sought after in the USA. Yet the price they get may not be enough. What they have are cars which almost anybody can fix, with parts that almost anybody can make. What they will get are cars which only a certified mechanic can fix, at prices the Cubans really cannot afford. Sure, the new cars will be bright, shinny and a marvel of modern robotic building, but build to last 50 years on a shoestring budget? You have to be joking.
